Don Bosco Guwahati's Class of 1997 Reunites After 25 Years
The alumni batch celebrated their 25th passing anniversary with events spread across the week.
GUWAHATI: Don Bosco School Guwahati is considered to be one of the most elite schools in the region for more than 50 years. And the batch of students who passed out from this school in 1997 organised the silver jubilee with events that spread across a week.
The main reunion event was organised for three days at Kaziranga from December 16 to 18. It included a meet-and-greet session, open-mic sessions, friendly football matches and bonfires. And it was all wrapped up with a performance by the Bosco Beats Band and the internationally renowned band Voodoo Child, which coincidentally has a batch of 1997 alumnus as their lead singer. An electrifying performance by EJ Sobique( Sauvik Sharma) enthralled the audience with foot-tapping numbers making the event livelier.
On the afternoon of December 23, another event was organised by the alumni at the premises of the Don Bosco Guwahati School to express gratitude to their teachers, some of whom are still teaching at the school. A felicitation ceremony was held to thank the teachers for their decades of selfless service. The school anthem was sung by the past students as a sweet remembrance of their childhood memories making it a very nostalgic moment not only for the past students and their teachers but also for the parents and family members of the students who were invited to the event.
The theme song for this Reunion, a nostalgic Thank You Tribute for the Teachers, as well as some tutorials, were released during the week. Composition, performance and recording were executed by the members of the Class of 1997.
This celebration saw almost 150 people coming together to relive old memories, create new ones, and also remember those that couldn't make it. At the end of the celebration, the alumni also promised to continue the tradition of inclusive reunions that bring together students, parents and teachers into the same event.
